Dr Asif Nazrul is the Professor of Law in Dhaka University
and a constitutional expert who brings the understanding of legal practices to
general people. Dr Nazrul is also a political analyst. Recently he came to the
USA to attend a seminar on Bangladesh Development and the vision about the
country in 20th century .
In an exclusive interview with VOABangla Asif Nazrul expressed his optimism
about Bangladesh and its potentialities. Talking about the changes in
Bangladesh, hesaid that some positive
changes have come to Bangladesh but they are not simply enough to undothe old culture of political intolerance .
Professor Nazrul also feels that a partial reform has come in Bangladesh
through the birth of a number of democratic organizations but regrets that
democracy within the party has not come. He, however, thinks that leaders of
the major parties will always have this issue in front of them, particularly the issue of change in the
leadership. He thinks change in that regard will also come sooner or later.
